“No Better Place to Stay in Brussels!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

Our three night stay at Chez Dominique was perfect! We loved the Montagne room and were very comfortable there. Armel was great, giving us advice on things to do in the area, maps, brochures, anything we needed. This resulted in a very personalized experience that you just don't find in hotels. In the evenings, we enjoyed all of the restaurants our hosts recommended as well as conversation and their homemade beer sampling upon our return. Dominique laid out a lovely breakfast for us each morning and was such a sweet presence. We hope to return to Brussels someday and will certainly stay no where else! Many thanks to them for such perfect hospitality!

My husband and I stayed at Chez Dominique for several days in June on our way to two weeks in France - my apologies for such a late review. We stayed in the room Imperatrice and found it to be perfect! It overlooked a beautiful garden - had wonderful beds/linens, and was extremely charming in its decor. The shower and facilities were spotless and beautifully done as well. I see that one reviewer was concerned with "noise", not having a TV, and not having a place to sit.....we stayed in the same room and had no difficulty sleeping, found no need for TV as all of Brussels was at our doorstep to enjoy, and felt very welcome to sit on the balcony or in the living area if we so chose.

There was a mix-up on which day we would be arriving so we presented as a "surprise" to Armel and Dominque...Armel quickly had us in another accommodation within minutes, certainly not as wonderful as Chez Dominque but perfectly fine for two weary travellers who just basically needed to catch up on sleep from the trip in from Philadelphia.

Chez Dominque has to be the best-placed location in all of Brussels - a 4-minute walk to the train station (2nd stop from airport), a 2-minute walk from a great little square/park surrounded by restaurants/shops, and a 5-minute walk from the Grand Place and the rest of "old city". Our breakfasts were wonderful fresh every day as well. And to top it all off - Armel drove us to the train station from which we were to leave and stayed to make sure we knew which train to board. Above and beyond!

We are hoping to return to Brussels again - partly because it is such an interesting and beautiful city - and partly because Chez Dominque is such a great place to start/end a vacation.

Room Tip: Both rooms would be wonderful.

We were there for 4 nights in the Imperatus. Room. We probably didn't get off to a great start as no one was home when we arrived.very scary , we waited for quite awhile, no answer, went to a store to ask about phoning,that didnt work.eventually other guests came and would let us in when the owners arrived.
Armel was handy with maps and books
The location is minutes from the square , that is ideal the downside to that is the noise.
There is no tv or phone or place that you are invited to sit other than your room.would like to be able to get cold water in the evening but no one around.
Breakfast standard fare, fresh bread and croissants,good coffee and hot milk.very clean facility .

DominiqueB, Propriétaire at Chez Dominique, responded to this review, September 11, 2013
Sorry for waiting but it’s the first time we have this kind of incident on a Sunday, because these guests were foreseen to arrive at 6PM, and they arrive earlier, we were downtown and came back at 5.45. Our other charming guests were here at same time and we shared a beer. Hope you give 5 next time, as you said it's charming and so clean.

We loved our stay here. The shower in our room spoiled us. The bed was beyond comfortable which might be a bad thing when you need to get up and out to see beautiful Brussels. The location couldn't have been better for the things that we needed to do and so close to the train station. Our hosts had tips for us on any topic. We were even loaned books on different topics that related to our trip. It felt not unlike staying with an attentive aunt and uncle who allowed you to see Belgium but always have a comfortable place to return.

We stayed at Chez Dominique for four days and it felt like home. The location is great just a 2 minute walk to the train station and to the Grand Place. Armel and Dominique were warm and welcoming and eager to share their home and their city with us. They had fabulous recommendations where to eat and things to do, and Armel loved sharing his love of beer with us. The rooms were clean and homey, and breakfast was fresh and tasty. They were so very accommodating. When we return to Brussels, we would not stay anywhere else!

We stayed 1 night in the Montagne room. Armel was very hospitable and friendly. Dominique was away visiting family when we were there. Room and apartment beautiful. Breakfast was delicious - croissants divine! The accommodation is only a few minutes walk from Grand Square. We would recommend without reservation.

My nephew and I stayed there for 3 nights while in transit from Sierra Leone and it was wonderful! Our flight arrived early and Armel had held the room for us at not cost other that what I felt was appropriate. We had home made breakfast every morning (loved the yoghut!) and the room was clean and tastefully furnished. The location was perfect for a first time non-French or Flemish speaker. We travelled all around with the help of maps Armel provided for us and we even walked to the flea market without getting lost.
It was a wonderful short trip!! Merci:)
